breeze at all. when you get the calm conditions, you can get some of the fog. if you had the breeze, it would stir is up. 68 in sacramento. 39 up in tahoe. up and down the coast, dealing with some fog. here's why i'm nervous. when you see these topple over, that's a negative sign. if this came in like that, this would be a positive sign. it's toppling over and the low is going to form here. when it gets here, it may wait for monday to get here. that would send our temperatures up. that's the way it's looking right now. a lot could change between now and sunday. i'm leaning in that direction. morning fog, fair. muggy, warm. higher clouds will give way to mostly sunny skies. it's still smokin' hot up in clearlake and middle town and u tiia -- ukiah. vacaville as well. the coast is pretty nice. we had some 60s and 70s yesterday. 70s to 90s from alameda out to

"cease fire" started back in 2007. there was some initial success but not long-term results. then, it was reintroduced in october of 2012 with what the city called renewed partnerships and commitment. but then in may of 2013, chief jordan stepped down and the program seemed to stumble until last month, when police got grant money to fund a full-time manager for the program. next month, a nine-person team will be responsible for not just cracking down but following up. we know that "cease fire" has worked in other cities. oakland is hoping these other additions, the full-time manager, the nine of person team, that some day oakland will be able to be touted as a success story. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2
